Happy Canada Day!

/ Thursday 1 July 2010 /
I've been so swamped with work, getting ready to go to Berlin for a conference, that I haven't had time to do any quilting for the last week - I am suffering withdrawal terribly! I have been wanting to take a "year in review" picture for awhile, but the weather has been so bad recently that it's been hard to grab a photo. So I took the opportunity of being home on Canada Day to throw these quilts over the fence and snap a couple of photos. These are some of the quilts that I have made in 2010; there are a couple that have been gifted and don't appear here. Not bad! If I didn't have to work, I could have made more!

I hope to get some time at the machine before I go abroad, but if not, I'll be posting some travel pics from Germany.  I wonder how one says "fabric store" in German?

And it's Canada Day, folks!  I'll leave you with this bagpipe serenade of The Maple Leaf Forever:

You know, we're celebraing our independence day here soon and wouldn't one or more of these quiltey treasures make a lovely gesture of goodwill towards an American friend to honor Canada Day? No? Really? Oh. Really.

Bummer. A for effort?

Happy Canada Day and as for German? Je parle umper Francais.

Aren't you supposed to be out canoeing and doing other Canadian things, like calling ham bacon and curling and playing hockey and drinking Labatt beer and racing the Iditarod?

For the record, I know the Iditarod is American, it's just that dog sledding seems a very Canadian thing to do.

Your year in review looks great! Also, let me ride your scooter!

Oh my! Your quilts are sew lovely. I hope to one day quilt as beautifully as you do. Thanks for sharing. Happy Sewing! :o) Wo ist der Stoff zu speichern? German translation for Where is the fabric store?
